Jiang Sese was still reeling with bashfulness when she slammed her door shut.Leaning heavily on the door, she panted hard, her heart still galloping violently. At long last, she sighed. "What am I doing?" She groaned, grimacing at her losing control just from a simple sentence of Xiaobao.She had a long draft of water and then undressed before she went for a shower. It was only when the powerful jet of warm water hit her skin that she felt her anxiety draining away with the suds, and her body and soul were reinvigorated and refreshed.She paused, her mind wandering back to the Jiangs. She brooded under the still-running warm water of the shower. "They will never give up. At least not yet. God knows what other plots they are hatching now." It would not be long before they came back again with more trouble and turmoil."Oh, God! It's tiresome dealing with these people!"She exited the bathroom and blow-dried her hair. Then she went to her computer and posted an ad. She needed a new
"I'm sorry. I guess my well-being is no concern of yours."Jiang Sese turned brusquely and left.She knew very well that "a cornered rat will bite a cat"—the Jiangs and Lans would never look kindly upon her behavior today. And she could bet that reprisals upon her decision to not help them would surely be answered with ugly reprisals from them. Still, their threats were not enough to force her to plead to Jin Fengchen for them.She could not afford to add fuel to the fire of their egotistical narcissism, lest it grow even stronger.Lan Sichen stood quietly, watching Jiang Sese's back retreating further and further away with a hateful and venomous stare....Jiang Sese decided that perhaps she should just go home. The chance encounter with Lan Sichen had done enough to deflate her enthusiasm and she no longer had any interest to meet any other real estate agents today.She was walking past the sliding doors of a shopping mall entrance when she saw a familiar figure.It was Jin F
Jiang Sese did not expect any visitors tonight and the sudden rapping on the door got her attention.She opened it, and before she knew it, a little figure bounded through the threshold and gave her legs a flying hug.Jiang Sese briskly bent down to catch hold of him, and to her surprise, it was Xiaobao, with Jin Fengchen looming just behind."Aunt Sese!"Unlike his demeanor in the evening, Xiaobao looked considerably elated as Jiang Sese bent down to carry the little child in her arms.She looked at them both, awestruck and confused. They should be home by now. The father and son pair were the last persons she had expected to see tonight."Xiaobao is here with a present for you, Aunt Sese!""Really?!" she exclaimed, sounding genuinely astounded. She carried Xiaobao into the house while Jin Fengchen walked inside after her, closing the door behind his back.Jiang Sese lowered Xiaobao to the sofa and asked brightly, "So, what present have you brought for Aunt Sese today?"Xiaob
The assistant hung up the phone and reflected on the fact that the president really treated Miss Jiang very well. He couldn’t be careless with this task so he got on with it immediately.The take-out was delivered once Jiang Sese and Xiaobao finished hanging the portrait on the wall.After the three of them had dinner, the father and son were ready to leave. Jiang Sese went downstairs to see them off.Xiaobao hugged her and said, "Aunt Sese, my birthday is the day after tomorrow. Please don't forget that you're invited."Jiang Sese nodded. Of course she hadn't forgotten about Xiaobao's birthday."Yes, I will be there on time.""Yay, I'll see you then."Xiaobao waved goodbye then got in the car with Jin Fengchen.Jiang Sese watched their car leave with a smile and then went upstairs....Jiang Sese received a phone call from the realtor the next morning."Morning. Is that Miss Jiang?""Speaking," Jiang Sese answered, "Who is that?""Miss Jiang, I'm the realtor. I saw the in
Jin Fengyao put her into the car after dragging her out of the apartment, then he drove the car away.While he was driving, Jin Fengyao called someone to help Jiang Sese move her stuff to the new place.He learned where Jiang Sese's new place was from the assistant when he was in the office earlier. He didn't think too much of it and told the people on the other side of the phone the exact address.After he hung up the phone, Jiang Sese, who was just next to him, asked quizzically, "Second Young Master Jin, how could you know where I am moving to?"Jin Fengyao only froze for a second. He then explained with a smile, "Didn't you tell me yourself just now when we were in your apartment?"He couldn't help getting nervous. His brother had helped Jiang Sese find the apartment and had done so without her knowing. If it were to be exposed by him now, Jin Fengchen would kill him.Jiang Sese found that very surprising. "Did I tell him that? I don't remember doing that."Jin Fengyao tried
Jin Fengyao could see Jiang Sese’s concern. He thought about it for a second and then said, "I’ll tell my brother to come over. You just wait here."Jiang Sese wanted to say no, but Jin Fengchen had already seen them. He walked toward them carrying Xiaobao in his arms.The cool and cold look on Xiaobao’s face changed to a smile when the little guy laid his eyes on Jiang Sese. He jumped down from Jin Fengchen's arms and ran toward Jiang Sese.Jiang Sese caught him so he would not fall from running too fast.Xiaobao was very delighted to see her and he yelled, "Aunt Sese you are finally here. I've been waiting for you for so long!"Jiang Sese held him in her arms and said with a smile, "Yes I'm here. Happy Birthday, Xiaobao!""Thank you, Aunt Sese! I'm happy, very happy!"Jin Fengchen walked up to her while they were talking.He checked Jiang Sese out and he said, "This gown suits you very well."Jiang Sese nodded awkwardly.Jin Fengyao stood at the side of them with his arms c
Jin Fengchen would indeed be preoccupied that night and didn't have much time to take care of Jiang Sese. After thinking about it, he said, "Then I'll leave Xiaobao to you."She wouldn't be bored with Xiaobao around."Sure, sure, I'll stay here with Auntie Sese. You can stop worrying, Daddy! I'll take good care of her."Xiaobao was elated, looking like he couldn't wait to send his father off so the latter wouldn't disturb his time with Jiang Sese.Helplessness flitted across Jin Fengchen's eyes. In his rich, mellow voice, he said, "I'll be heading over then.""Mhm."Jiang Sese nodded. After watching him leave, she took Xiaobao around.They were strolling when they ran into Su Qingyin when the latter walked out of the washroom."What a coincidence, Miss Jiang.""Miss Su." Jiang Sese greeted her with a smile.Su Qingyin's eyes flickered when she spotted Xiaobao beside Jiang Sese. She was about to say something when Xiaobao tugged on Jiang Sese's hand and said, "I'm hungry, Aunt
It was obvious that Qin Shuang had knocked into Jiang Sese on purpose. She looked at the latter with a feigned look of astonishment. "Oh my, it's Jiang Sese. What a coincidence."Jiang Sese frowned as she sized both women up, impatience flitting across her pupils. She didn't want to pay them any mind, but Qin Shuang stopped her and said, "Jiang Sese, you're still so poorly educated. Don't you know how to apologize after knocking into someone?"The surrounding guests, who had been keeping an eye on Jiang Sese all along, turned to stare when they heard the commotion.Jiang Sese looked at them with a steely expression. Her voice was cold as she replied, "What do you want?"Qin Shuang smiled. "Nothing. It's just good manners for you to apologize after knocking into me, don't you think so?"Xiaobao immediately stepped forward and said, "Grandma, you're the one who knocked into Auntie Sese.""Xiaobao, it's all right."Jiang Sese pulled Xiaobao behind her. The light in her eyes dimmed.
